I’ll Be Home For Christmas

Although Michael Bublé sang a gorgeous rendition of this song in 2003, Bing Crosby still holds the number one spot in our hearts for this classic number.

White Christmas

Although you can’t wish for a white, snowy Christmas down under, you can definitely feel it, thanks to this classic popular holiday hit by Bing Crosby. We’re not surprised that Guinness World Records named it the best-selling single of all time.

Silver Bells

We couldn't stop at two Crosby tunes; although this number was originally sung by Bob Hope and Marilyn Maxwell, Crosby recorded his version a year later and it became a hit right after. No wonder he’s known as the ‘unofficial king of Christmas’.

Blue Christmas

Talking about the King - back in 1957, Elvis Presley sang “Blue Christmas” with his famous touch of rock and roll to it. As blue as the year has been, we hope the holiday season is twice as merry.

All I Want For Christmas Is You

Mariah Carey has a whole album dedicated to Christmas songs, but this hands down has to be her most enduring Christmas song. This was the track that rightfully earned her the title "Queen of Christmas” as well as hit the charts as the best-selling modern-day Christmas song of all time.

Last Christmas

This song was sung by Pop duo WHAM!, composed of George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley. Although sung in the 80s, this pop tune only hit the top of the charts after 2017. Play this for any crowd and watch everyone lipsing to it.

Here Comes Santa Claus

This one is definitely one of the few cheerful tunes that not only get the kids eager to see old St. Nick, but even get the elders grooving. Listening to this kid-friendly classic will immediately transport you back to your childhood.

Frosty The Snowman

You might know this classic probably because you’ve been singing your whole life. Although this isn’t Gene Autry’s original, there’s something about his touch of country vocals that adds something extra to this tune.

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Whichever version you choose to hear of this hit; this festive tune is so worthy to play on repeat. Although in our opinion Springsteen rendition is one of the most energetic performances of this classic holiday song out there.

Rocking Around The Christmas Tree

Did you know Brenda Lee was only 13 when she recorded this song? You can fill an entire Christmas playlist with different versions of this classic. If not, you can definitely make room for this all time fan favorite.

Santa Baby

This cheeky Christmas song is the ultimate anthem about what women really want for Christmas - extravagant Christmas gifts. Hint your family by playing this holiday tune by Eartha Kitt, on repeat.

Jingle Bells

Any jazzy rendition of this Christmas classic is a holiday staple! Also, did you know, a harmonica version of it was actually the first song ever that was played in outer space? This lyrical tune is truly like no other, out of this world!
